UT Finds No Scientific Misconduct in Study on Gay Parenting

posted on August 31, 2012

The University of Texas has determined that faculty member Mark Regnerus is not guilty of scientific misconduct for his study that raised concerns about the risks of gay parenting. “A number of sociologists and gay marriage advocates objected to his findings, contending that they subverted a decade of research,” reports Ralph K.M. Haurwitz for the Austin American-Statesman. Still, the university’s inquiry provided “no falsification of data, plagiarism or other serious ethical breaches constituting scientific misconduct.”
